CIAEM becomes an ICMI Affiliate Organisation
The Comité Inter-Americano de Educación Matemática (Inter-American Committee on Mathematical Education) is now officially affiliated to ICMI, thus being the first multi-national mathematical education society to become linked to ICMI under the new scheme of "Affiliate Organisation" introduced through the revision of the ICMI Terms of Reference adopted by the IMU Executive Committee on December 31, 2009. This affiliation was approved by the Executive Committees of both ICMI and CIAEM.
As CIAEM was founded in 1961, at the initiative of Marshall Stone who at that time was the President of ICMI, it will celebrate in 2011 its 50th anniversary on the occasion of the XIII Conferencia Interamericana de Educación Matemática (XIII Inter-American Conference on Mathematics Education) to be held in Recife, Brasil, on June 26-30, 2011.
